Summer is the season where temperatures have historically hovered around a comfortable 70 degrees most days while occasionally reaching a slightly warm 80 degrees. Perhaps the Deep South would rarely reach 85 degrees in during a historic heatwave before global warming. But now summers are hot – real hot. And global warming is to blame. […]
About Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow
In 1985, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) was founded to promote a positive voice on environment and development issues. Its co-founders, David Rothbard and Craig Rucker, believed very strongly that the power of the market combined with the applications of safe technologies could offer humanity practical solutions to many of the world’s pressing concerns. A number of leading scientists, academics, and policy leaders would also agree with them and soon joined their effort, along with thousands of citizens from around the country.
Today, this Washington DC-based group is a highly respected organization and its voice can be heard relentlessly infusing the environmental debate with a balanced perspective on environmental stewardship. With an influential and impressive scientific advisory board, aggressive collegiate program, CFACT Europe, United Nations representation, Adopt-A-Village project, Global Social Responsibility program, and “Just the Facts” national radio commentary, CFACT has and continues to offer genuine positive solutions to today’s global challenges.
The organization has been termed “invaluable” by the Arizona Republic, it has been lauded for its “effort to bring sound science to the environmental debate” by a former president of the National Academy of Sciences, and has been praised by a respected Boston Globe columnist for “a record of supplying absolutely solid information.” To learn more please visit: www.CFACT.org.

Driven by Green ideology, the Obama Administration set unrealistic fuel standards (a.k.a. “CAFE” rules) for cars sold in America. Yesterday, the Trump Administration announced it is putting a freeze on their implementation before any serious damage is done. As recent as the Bush administration, the fuel efficiency standard was 27.5 miles per gallon. The Obama […]
Every turbine and panel that goes up raises the cost of electricity for the community it (allegedly) serves. Take a look at this hard-hitting editorial at CFACT.org that reveals the hypocrisy of the wind and solar crowd. Failing the laugh test: Wind, solar power make subsidy accusations The lavishly subsidized wind and solar power industries apparently don’t […]
People in highly developed countries take energy for granted. Try living without it. Millions of Africans still live without electricity. That needs to change. Fast. Two of CFACT’s most distinguished scholars, Paul Driessen and David Wojick, posted a pair of articles to CFACT.org you should know about. They discuss international development banks. The first titled “Multilateral anti-development […]
Is there a more self-contradictory term than “settled science?” Science should always be open to challenge and investigation. The scientific method demands that conclusions must follow facts. We must never adjust the facts to suit a conclusion. Sadly, this is not always the case. We posted an article at CFACT.org which highlights how “Stanford University medical professor […]
What happens when two items high on the Green agenda collide with each other? One thing for sure, it isn’t a pretty sight. Such is currently the case concerning “ozone depletion” and “global warming.” Through the 1987 Montreal Protocol, the Greens clamored for the adoption of refrigerant HFC’s, or hydrofluorocarbons, to replace older refrigerant chemicals […]
CFACT’s kicked off a new billboard on busy I-10 in Louisiana which reads, “Russia funneled Green groups millions of dollars to oppose fracking & cripple American energy,” and asks, “How’s that for COLLUSION?” The billboard campaign was spearheaded by CFACT’s Graham Beduze and Adam Houser. Russia wants to reduce and eliminate competition to its energy […]
Outright bans on plastics have an overall negative effect on the environment, and recycling initiatives make for better solutions, according to an Independent Institute report. As climate change becomes a larger political issue, more consideration is being given to bans on plastic products. France became the first country in 2016 to ban plastic plates and cups. The […]

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has been so ineffective at recovering species that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has fabricated a record of success. That’s the finding from Robert Gordon in a Heritage Foundation report. New Heritage Foundation report highlights failures of Endangered Species Act “The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has been so ineffective […]
CFACT barnstormed CPAC, The Conservative Political Action Conference, this weekend with a series of activities that culminated in a light saber duel between “Green Energy” Darth Vader and the “Reliable Energy” Jedi! “We thought this would get the point across to the crowd pretty easily: That so-called ‘green’ energy that needs subsidies is the bad […]
It didn’t take long at the UN’s “World Urban Forum,” currently underway in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for those assembled to voice their displeasure with American freedom. “We’re not sure what happened to North America [audience laughter] but we’re trying to make sustainable development great again,” said a panel of European Union mayors and city planners. […]
This week President Trump declared an “America first” defense policy. Energy independence is its cornerstone. Despite everything government can do to mess things up, the free market drove the shale energy revolution. Today we are fracking our way to genuine energy independence. This drives the anti-energy Greens nuts. CFACT is just back from a (frozen) […]
COP 23, the UN climate conference in Bonn, Germany, ended with a coal-powered whimper. The point of the meeting was to write the rule book for the Paris Climate Agreement that President Obama signed the U.S. onto. President Trump then declared that the U.S. would exit Paris and make no future payments to the UN’s […]
